Colonial Game. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Coloniali Gamle. While the Cornish miners of sonime thirty years ago were building up a fighting Game cock to take the place of the old English, and from which evolved the present Indian Game, a remarkable coincidence is the fact, that about the same time exactly the same process was going on in the Hawkesbury district of this colons the breeds used by the old cockers for the required purpose being almost identical with those u-ed by the Cornishmen. Both parties were working for the common end, namely, good fighting birds, little. thinking that a fancier's or show fowl would be the ultimate result of their labours. One great difference between the Hawkesbury and Cornish evolutions is that regarding colour; the birds produced by the miners is a new colour to the fancy, while the Hawkesburv men followed strictly the line of the British Game, producing their favourites in Black-reds, Duckwing, Piles, Brown-reds, Whites, and Blacks. So far as the general build of the bird is concerned, ...

Poultry Notes. Prolitable Poultry Breeding for the Local and English Markets. From te Agricultural G'azette of N.Z?. V. -0 BY GEO. BRADSIlkW PART VIII. Table Poultry. --0 Game. The game fowl, or old Englisn game of half a century ago, in appearance, far excelled that of any then known variety, whether as regards its elegant form, graceful and majestic ca, riage, bold, proud, and courageous bearing or bril liancy of its plumage, and was often likened to the other breeds of poultry as the racehorse among horses, or the grey hound among-dogs. The form was elegant in outline, and perfectly sym metrical in every part, with a small head, fine comb (before dubbing), eye large, full, and bright, bill short, breast ample and broad, wings strong, and drooping towards the ground, projecting rather behind the body, thighs strong, the neck and saddle-hackles large and abundant, and shoulders broad. As table-fowls they were not of the largest, but the flesh was of the most boeutiful whiteness, an...
HUMOROUS COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
HUMOROUS COLUMN. A Scotch clergyman, reinarkable for the simplicity and force of his style, was i one day discoursing on the text, "Except ye repent ye shall likewise perish." In order to impress upon his hearers the importance of attending to the solemn truth contained in the passage, he made use of a figure of a very simple but strik ing character. "Yes, my friends," he emphatically urged, " unless ye repent ye shall surely perish," placing one of his fingers on the wing of a blue fly which alighted on his Bible, and having his right hand uplifted, " just as sure, my friends, as I'll flatten this blue-fly." Before the blow was struck the fly got off, upon which the minister, at the top of his voice, exclaimed : " Ah, weel ! There's a chance for ye yet, my friends I' This epitaph is copied from. a tomb stone in the church-yard at Billville, U.S.A.: Beneath this stone in sleep profound Lies Major William Blinn. . He put six wives beneath the ground, - Butthe sixth one buried him. Sh...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Many business men advertise only at certain seasons of the year, many prefer ring the fall and early spring. But the ex perience of advertisers who have wma.le the subject a study is that persistent advertis ing is the best and returns more profit con sidering the outlay than advertising by fits and starts. It keeps one always before the public in a sense, and the power of a daily or weekly repetition of an advertisement is inestimable. A French writer says that the first time a person sees an advertise ment he hardly notices it; the second time, lie remembers he has seen it before; the third time, he reads it; the fourth time he wonders if it meets his wants; and the fifth time, he buns the article. This, at least, is human nature. A single insertion of an advertisement seldom produces much impression, but let that advertisement be repeated for a month or six months, and satisfactory results generally will follow. People remember that they have seen it before, and gradually they ga...

THE DAIRY THAT CO-OPERATIVE CREAMERY. Clear Statement of What Is Absolutely Essential to Its Success. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
THAT CO-OPERATIVE CREAMERY. Clear Statemnent of T?' ::t .?s Absolutely Ed sen:ti:a to Its Snccess. I believe that where a private cream ery has been successful a co-operative creamery can also be made so, but cer tain things are absolhitely necessary. First-The stockholders must have a good working knowledge of the dairy business; they must have good cows and take care of them and feed them. Second-Enough milk should be guar anteed from the start to run the cream, ery to its capacity. The way to secure the milk is to take in as stockholders 6nly farmers who milk their cows, not beginning business until enough cows are secured. Third-?A man who can make first clads butter and cheese and who understands everything connected with the creamery business, from weighing the 'milk, tak ing samples and testing it to shipping the products, conducting the necessary -corresponldence and. keeping the books. No matter how well the patrons do their part, if the man who makes up the milk does not u...
Law Relating to Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Law Relating to Newspapers. 1. Subscribers who do not give express notice to the contrary, are considered as wishing to continue their subscription. 2. If subscribers order the discontinu ance of their periodicals, the publisher may continue to send them until arrears are paid. 3. If subscribers refuse or neglect to take periodicals from the office to which they are directed, they are held responsible until they have settled their bills, and ordered the periodicals to be discontinued. 4. If subscribers move to other places without informing publishers, and the papers are sent to their former direction, the subscribers are responsible. 5. The courts have decided that "re fusing to take periodicals from the office or removing or leaving them uncalled for is prima facie evidence of intentional fraud." 6. If subscribers pay in advance for periodicals, they are bound to give notice to the publisher, at the end of the time, that they do not wish to continue taking it, otherwise the publis...
Test That Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Test ""hat Milk. With the use of the Dabcock machine any ordinarily intelligent dairyman can accurately tell the value of his cows, his milk and cream, also the value of the. different food consumed. He can also tell, if he runs a home dairy, if he is get ting out all the butter in the milk, what per cent butter fat he leaves in thaslkim milk and the butter milk, as well as tell the value of the first milking and of the stripping which the different milkmali or milkmaid leaves in the udder. He can also tell, if he takes his milk to the creamery, if the creameryman is testing the milk honestly. It is surprising after using a Babcock machine to ascertain that milk from cows of the same breed, same farm, same care and treatment, will vary just double in the per cent of butter fat, and very often in those animals where it was least expected. It is also sur prising to learn the difference which the food and the care and treatment of the cows will make in the per cent of butter fat. It is...
Dairy and Creamery. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 30 November 1900
Dairy and Creamery. Creamery men and dairymen every. where ought to combine in one deter mined effort to rid America of oleomar garine. They should give their law mak ers no peace till the thing is done. If the LUvw makers refuse to heed, let them hear somethiing drop at the nest election. A creameryman who uses the De Laval lactoerite test says that he much prefers . it to any other method in use for show brig the: amount of butte;, at in milk. With the lactocrite he declares he can test 12 samples in five minutes. The machinery of the Blythewood lairy, Esse,; Efigland, is run entirelyby electricity. Why do not some of our American creameries try the same mo tive power where it can be obtained cheaply? . Professor Cooks iias tO 3t the odor from ensilage is causel by a gas that passes off in the feeding. It it get into the milk it is because the milkei is care less and has allowed the gas to cling to his clothing. Tie. say further that CoTo when shocked in the field heats quite as m...

The visitors were on the ground ready to start punctual to time, but only half of the local club were present, and the match had to be started with several substitutes. About an hour after the game was started the full team was in the field, but our cricketers, if they want to be successful, will have to be more punctual. The result of the match was a win for the visitors by 23 runs. Scores: SEVILLE. First Innings. HT. Russell, bI M'Callum ....... 20 WV. Duck, c Phillips, b Jones ... 13 F.
